Report: Resident Evil 7 to Be Shown at E3 2016, Returns to Horror Roots

Serkan Toto, CEO of Tokyo-based game industry consultancy Kantan Games, wrote on Twitter today that Capcom is working on Resident Evil 7 and will show it off at E3 2016 next month:

1) About Resident Evil 7: Yes, it’s in development. The entire game will go back to RE’s horror roots and (essentially) be a clean slate.

2) They will show it at E3. The RE7 team hired Jordan Amaro, a designer who previously worked on MGS V and P. T. at Kojima Productions. /end.

Capcom hasn’t officially confirmed Resident Evil 7, but Resident Evil Producer Masachika Kawata did address it in October 2015, saying that “we’re currently not at a state to talk about it… but please stay tuned.”

Speculation about a new Resident Evil started up again last week when Capcom said a major unannounced game is coming before April 2017 and they expect it to sell four million copies.

Do you think we’ll see Resident Evil 7 at E3?
